Thanks to delivering some tip-top material over the last 12 months, Emperor is widely considered to be one of drum & bass's most exciting young talents. His style isn't exactly left-of-centre, but he's not afraid to tamper with the drum & bass blueprint in search of next-level dancefloor thrills. Take opener "Defect", for example, whose fusion of choppy, breakcore-influenced drum programming, mutilated Dalek voices and mechanical bass is undeniable off-piste. Elsewhere on this impressive double-pack, you'll find the full-frontal assault on the senses that is "Shadow", the precise-but-punchy rhythms and mind-melting industrial bass of "Calypso", and the weighty horror-jungle of "Tireless".
